Named one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world by National Geographic, Lake Lure offers some of the most magnificent views found in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The lake is surrounded by lush mountain tops and sheer granite cliffs, and from almost any vantage point on the water you can see the famous Chimney Rock standing stately. Take a short trip from the lake and visit Chimney Rock Park where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the lake and the whole of the Hickory Nut Gorge.
At Rumbling Bald Resort, we consider ourselves very lucky to be located in such a beautiful area which boasts gorgeous views, activities and most importantly great people. While our primary purpose at the Resort is to provide guests and members with facilities and amenities to serve their vacations and lives, we realize that many in our local community are unsure of the opportunities and amenities available to them.
We wanted to clear the air and help you better understand those areas of the Resort that are open to the public.
When planning your escape to Rumbling Bald Resort, experience our vast area, take in our beautiful views and revel in the excitement that Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Foothills has to offer.
